(he/they) Corey Klassen is the Principal Designer and founder of Articulated Design Studio. His areas of focus as an interior designer are kitchen and bath design, renovation design, corporate offices, and design team leadership. As an experienced interior design educator, Corey’s attention is on integrating the standards of the interior design industry’s professional practice areas with the more technical aspects within the overall design process. Corey regularly attends lectures and professional development courses on health, safety, and welfare in addition to sustainable building, passive housing design, and building codes.
Corey comes from a long line of creatives, including draftspeople, custom home builders, tailors, window dressing designers, floral designers, and artists. Growing up in southeastern Manitoba, they always found something to construct, whether it was in the sandbox, painting a wall, a snowbank, or with LEGO blocks. Much of these formations lent Corey naturally to architectural drafting and graphic design, notably earning an internship at Cortinage & Co Architects (Winnipeg, MB) at just 17 years old.
With nearly 20 years of industry experience, he started Corey Klassen Interior Design in 2011 (now Articulated Design Studio) and has designed trade show booths, won 17 design awards for their kitchens and bathrooms, been featured in international advertising campaigns, and designed various commercial spaces. Now, Corey lends themselves to brand collaborations and course development at the corporate level and frequently lectures on topics of space planning, design fundamentals, kitchen and bath design, professional practices, and construction drawings.
